best ever vegan roasties

You don’t need goose fat to make good roast spuds (use rapeseed oil, which also supports local farmers). Try these roasties from Welsh chef Gaz Oakley.

Don’t feed leftover potatoes to pets, birds or wildfowl as it usually has salt, chives or butter (can smear on feathers, affecting waterproofing/insulation). If giving pets an occasional treat, just feed plain mash potato. Read more on food safety for people & pets

Do you know your spuds? Maris Piper can be used for anything (chips, baked, boiled, mashed or roast). Russett are also good for chips, as are King Edwards (also good for roasting and baking). Waxy red-skinned Desiree potatoes make good mash, and Jersey Royals are  good boiled with herbs and palm-oil-free vegan butter.
